No.

Everyone has to sell, Activision-Blizzard won't have any shareholders as they become an entity under Microsoft who does and as Microsoft is paying all cash there's no stock offers (I.E. Microsoft isn't offering stock in their company for the sale), in Trailer Park terms it's basically...

Nobody said they can't.

Should we be worried?

Idk, I'm not, Lol.

We're talking Microsoft, a $1.9 trillion dollar company, as a reference, a 5% stake in Microsoft would cost $97bn? Lol.

Maybe they already own stock in Microsoft (I can't find any reference though) but it would be a ridiculously small amount, we're talking like 0.Something %.

They'll be even more irrelevant than the 5% they have in Nintendo.
